This is really a cool thread. I like the way this is coming out. Just a side question with so much modification being done what happens to the original VIN? Is it hard to get it registered with the DMV?

Locally, such a car would just continue to be registered as it was originally.

Ray-your build is great. The ideas you may see here are of varying merit with mine being the ones of the least value. Big Grin Since you are building the car for yourself, I would encourage you to remain faithful to your own vision.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

I have known the DMV inspector and before him, his dad, for over 30 years. The car is legit, the numbers will not be touched through the build, the inspector looked at the car before I touched it, and my integrity is forthcoming with them. They know of my plans and will inspect it again before it can be tagged. Honesty pays I've never been involved with questionable or compromised situations. It's all good. Also my shop is a licensed inspection station in NC. whistling

Yes it will carry the original vin number and be titled as it was ,a 71 mach1. I also have the option of turning in the original title, as proof of ownership , then have a new custom vehicle dated when completed, for example , a 2015 custom vehicle, which can either carry the original vin or be assigned a new number by the state. NC is quite reasonable about custom car titles. This process requires the purchase of an indemnity bond. This is car country here where several NASCAR greats have and still do live.

I have been kind of distracted this week, not much got done. Working on fabbing trunk lid and hinge placement. Along with filling the remainder of the rear panel. Lots of tedious sheet metal but welding, little obvious progress. Pics next week. Thanks guys!

Original rear bumper. Tail lights are undecided at this time still, I was going with original with led sequential kit. Had a few comments with alternative suggestions. Kind of got me thinking but not come up with a change plan, so for now back panel is set for original lights. Easy enough to change at any point for a while. Waiting to see if anything hits me. I have a friend with a machine shop and we discussed a new billet bezel that would downsize the lens area and slightly change the shape but not sure at this time. do ya have any thoughts?

Ray I actually like the original lights, especially how they resemble the rear profile of the car its a nice styling que and so subtle most don't see it until its pointed out slightly down sized would be neat, however You have a very good eye so stick with your plans you don't need my advice.
